During the normal course of duties at a given day on the job, no worker expects that he or she will suffer injury or become seriously ill. However, workplace accidents and other situations sometimes occur that result in an employee being physically injured and/or in need of medical care for an illness that was caused by something in his or her work environment. It is important to know where to turn for legal help in California under such circumstances.
Many people do not realize that they might be entitled to compensation that can help pay medical bills and replace lost wages after they become injured or are made ill in the workplace.
